Scrap Basket

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the fact that the vision I had when picking the two colors of fabric, actually turned into a beautiful basket that got a lot of attention when people visited my home! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't become discouraged and frustrated when trying to wrap fabric around cord. This will take patience and time. Also choose a solid color for basket when just starting out.

What you will need

  • cotton fabric strips cord glue needle & thread Sewing machine buttons/optional

Q&A with Patricia Stuart

VicMansfield asked:
Hi - I love these baskets and am really interested in giving it a go! How wide are the strips of material you use and do you sew the material onto the cord before sewing the rows together with your machine?? thanks for sharing your beautiful baskets I am very inspired by your creations! :)
Patricia Stuart answered:
Hi! The strips I use are 1 inch in width. They can be long. The longer the better for continual wrapping onto
